Books Wot I Read in 2019

It hasn’t been a bad year for reading. In 2018 I read about two books a month, and this year I managed a little over 2½. I’m a slow reader, unlike a friend of mine who can plough through 400 books a year and is, therefore, a freak. My goal for 2020 is to reach three books a month, and that’s all you’re getting, I’m not bloody Superman. It is kind of nice to reflect back on the year that’s been, though, instead of letting it all slip away. Here’s what happened and what was memorable in 2019.
